How will I be taught?
A stimulating and safe environment in which students will explore their own talent with a supportive attitude to each other's work. Pair and group work will be used during the course. Students should be prepared to share and discuss their original work, receiving comments and constructive feedback.
Initial assessment will be carried out at the beginning of the course to assess individual skill level. Each student's starting point will be recorded on an Individual Learning Plan (ILP) and targets will be set. This will be revisited from time to time during the course to monitor and record progress. Tutors will mark homework and give written or verbal feedback.
What do I need to bring with me?
An A4 file/notepad and folder for handouts. Pen/pencil.
What can I do next?
The tutor will be able to advise.
What do I need to join the course
